GDT: Coilers vs Whale Shit On Ice - 25 Feb 2021 @ 19:00 PST on SNP

Post by Meds »

This one is going to be riveting.

Edmonton should show up confident that they can mail it in for the first 20 minutes before actually having to try and win. This will let the Canucks build up a 4 goal lead before blowing it in the last 10 minutes.

With every loss going forward one has to think that more and more eyes start turning towards Montreal and Bergevin's response to a mini-slide by the Habs.

5-4 Oilers in OT.

Quite simple prediction today.
If they remember to drink their OJ, they’re winners.
If they forget and act like idiots ham-boning, they’re losers.

Shouldn’t be dressing UFAs (Benn, Sutter and Pearson) to avoid them getting injured before they are traded away.

Makes sense, since they spotted us 3 last time. :?

Nothing I've seen lately makes me think this will be the big turning point in the season. Still a lot of work to be done, but when only 1-2 players a game are playing to their potential, it's going to be a long trip.

I'll enjoy watching Hoglander with Petey and see if they can get anything going. Will Jake make an extra effort tonight on the 2nd line?

GO CANUCKS GO!

When the Canucks are up by 3 goals with 33 seconds left in the 3rd period will I actually believe they can win the game.

It will be interesting to see of Petey and the Hog click.

The team should also try to avoid getting a 3-0 lead. Håkan Södergren, who used to play on the Swedish national team and later became a colour guy on TV has famously stated ”there’s nothing worse in hockey than having a three goal lead”.

Sure, people scoff and say trailing by three must clearly be worse, but I think he meant mentally. When you get a three goal lead you think you have won, and you stop giving 100%. Then the other team scores, and suddenly you get nervous...

Either way. Yeah. Just win! :drink:

I’m saying 4-3 Canucks. In overtime. Boeser with the game winner.

Well, he said three. Maybe it depends on rink size. :hmmm:

Either way he also once said ”I’m going to kiss Krutov!”
So maybe he just sometimes said weird stuff.
